FCS happy of grantees performance after visit



 

Foundation for Civil Society (FCS) expects more achievements to be registered through on-going projects which are being implemented throughout the country. These high expectations result from the outcome of the monitoring and support visits undertaken by FCS staff members from 5 to 13 April this year.

The overall reflection of FCS staff members reveals that many grantees have improved both project implementation and results capturing. It has been noted that, some organizations have drastically improved their capacity to manage their grants and are reaping early fruits.

FCS Executive Director Mr. Francis Kiwanga who also visited some grantees, says the overall assessment is an appreciation of the good work which FCS grantees are doing. The Executive Director further reveals that there is a fundamental impact on social economic transformation as a result of grantee operations at grassroots level, although there is still room for greater improvement. He, however, adds that FCS and other stakeholders needed to do more by strengthening the sector and enlivening as it previously used to be.

For his part, FCS Program Manager Francis Uhadi said there was an increase in compliance; and that good results have been attained. Mr Uhadi said, there was a remarkable change in the grantees financial management, and they were expecting to see a few audit queries on funded projects this year. “Generally speaking, there is a pronounced trend on ground, which translates into greater capacity growth of CSO grant management,” he says.

Gesturd  Haule, the FCS Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Manager, says his department plans to develop a guiding manual on monitoring and evaluation in order to boost FCS grantees ability to capture results. “There are some organisations which have more to report as far as results are concerned. They do less simply because they lack additional monitoring and evaluation skills,” he says.
